, and it was interesting, though, the idea that he would go outside the record and complain about president obama's order on young people who had been brought here with their parents illegally and undocumented, and he did get a lot of really negative press on it, and, in fact, people suggested he should step down, but, frankly, i think, he will still be doing what he does. >> guest: she's right about that. c-span: you will be doing what you do -- >> guest: what's this going outside the record stuff? c-span: that was at -- >> guest: imnumerable cases in which we cite newspaper articles, so many cases, there's no law you can't cite the record. if it's a factual matter up for decision, of course, you can only use the matter set forth in the record to determine the facts, but that's not the purpose for which i used it at all, and we use the public records all the time. the point i made this had nothing to do with the factual determination. i don't want to -- people should read the opinion to see whether my use of that sowled non-record materialfuls profit or not. c-span: were you surprised at the reaction wh

of the names, donovan or president obama was working there and bob zoellick, is that the name right? zoellick with the republican party was also there. can duberstein was a member of the board. seal the seams. tim geithner is in your book, nor treasury secretary. was his relationship to all this? >> guest: tim geithner is the president of the new york fed during the years when regulation became extremely lax in this country for financial institutions and particularly new york, citibank was the purview of the new york fed and obviously not paying attention because citibank became one of the biggest nightmares of the bailout brigade. so tim geithner was really at the creation of this kind of belief that banks could set their own capital standards, which are riveted for a wonderful thing that spreads risk and financial innovation was not to be stopped. there's all this kind of mindset really came down from greenspan i think, who said it really was anti-regulation, not interested in making sure that financial products that were sold to people were not going to go up on them five minutes later. an
